Abstract: Planning and design of Elevated Green Spaces are getting more crucial in recent years, especially in promoting community bonding to foster a stronger sense of belonging among its citizens in a metropolitan compact high rise city like Singapore. It is therefore worthy and relevant to study the design and planning of these elevated green spaces and its impact on community bonding within the public housing estates in Singapore. Through the literature review, it was proven that planning and design of green spaces could have an impact on community bonding. However, there is currently a dearth in studies currently being done in Singapore’s context. This research aims to investigate the impact of the current elevated green space design and planning in affecting community bonding among residents within the public housing estates in Singapore. It is hypothesised that most of these elevated green spaces are currently weak in encouraging community bonding within the community due to the lack of adaptation opportunity to most spaces and the lack of consideration for site context in most design. Qualitative and quantitative methods would be applied in analysing various local case studies to investigate the relationship between design and planning of elevated green spaces and community bonding. These methods will include observational techniques, space analysis, mass survey, as well as interviews with residents staying in these estates.
